We’re happy to announce the Lytro Cinema camera as the winner of the award for Most Innovative of NAB 2016.
We reported on this camera last week, but as a quick explanation of this impressive technology, Lytro Cinema uses a 755 RAW megapixel sensor to capture extremely detailed Light Field data — including color, direction and position for each pixel — allowing creators to make, in post-production, decisions that would normally be locked in on set.
Focus point, depth of field and relative camera position can all be adjusted in the edit bay, allowing cumbersome effects such as chroma keying to be achieved much more easily and with less preparation.
Congratulations to Lytro for pushing the medium further. For more information, visit www.lytro.com.
